Hilltop jumps rope for heart health

Hilltop Primary School students wrapped up their Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser on March 17 and more than doubled their goal of $5,000, raising $10,194 for the American Heart Association (AHA).

“I am so excited and pleased to share that Team Hilltop—the students, staff, parents and other stakeholders—stepped up and rang the bell,” said physical education teacher Sean Ryther. “We believed that we could make a difference, and we did.”

Thanks to the efforts of Team Hilltop, over 200 lives will be positively impacted by the generous donation. The Jump Rope for Heart service learning activity raised awareness about heart health, in addition to raising lifesaving funds for the AHA.
